Port Orange campus receives Anatomage tables

Students at the Anatomage Table in the Library.
9 students standing beside the touchscreen Anatomage table, which is displaying a skeleton.

The Anatomage Table is the first life-sized, 3-D virtual dissection table with a fully interactive, multi-touch screen. The table makes it possible to virtually “slice” through all layers of the human body and also view the body in X-ray mode. The table is portable and adaptable to many environments. In addition to the large table touch screens, scans can be projected or exported to external monitors or onto any flat surface.

There are now two tables available on Palmer’s Port Orange campus. One is housed in the David D. Palmer Health Sciences Library and the other in the dryanatomy lab. All scans come from frozen, non-chemically treated cadavers.

The Anatomage Table is a collaboration between the Stanford University’s Division of Clinical Anatomy and the California-based, 3-D medical technology company, Anatomage. Currently there are only about 150 full-sized tables in use worldwide. Until now, only the University of Central Florida and the Mayo Clinic were using the table in central Florida.
